High security network crypto for the tactical and mobile domain


SkyTale provides reliable, secure network communications, connecting server rooms, command posts, vehicles and field operatives.

SkyTale is a family of IP network cryptos, initially developed in close cooperation with the Dutch military. It offers confidentiality and integrity protection for your (high assurance) network data over a multitude of carriers (WLAN Adhoc, LTE, SatCom, radio and so on). SkyTale uses Payload Encryption, a custom protocol designed by Fox-IT, specifically targeted at mobile and radio domains. The SkyTale solution is available in different shapes and sizes aimed to be used in server rooms, vehicles and worn on uniforms. All members of the SkyTale product family have compatible protocol implementations.
